I am a stay at home mom. I have a 3 yo and a 6 mo old. I am having a difficult time right now because their naps are not at the same time. I can't figure out how to get my 3 yo to sleep when my baby is not ready for a nap. My 3 yo still nurses at nap and bedtime.
The 6 mo old naps at 10, 2 or 3 and sometimes at 6 p.m.
My 3 yr old will nap for at least an hour in ideal circumstances. My 6 mo old will also nap about an hour. They both nap longer when I am laying there with them. Especially the 6 mo old. He will occasionally stir and then nurse back to sleep. I've enjoyed a family bed but I don't particularly want it until they are teens.
